Disease Tab: COVID-19
Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a life-threatening lung injury that occurs when fluid leaks into the lungs. As a result, breathing becomes difficult and oxygen cannot get into the body. ARDS is one of the most serious and lethal consequence of COVID-19. This clinical trial will use Mesenchymal Stromal Cells (MSCs) for the treatment of ARDS, […]
A phase I/II study of human placental hematopoietic stem cell derived natural killer cells (CYNK-001) for the treatment of adults with COVID-19
This trial will use blood stem cells obtained from the placenta to generate natural killer (NK) cells, a type of white blood cell that is a vital part of the immune system, and administer them to patients with COVID-19. NK cells play an important role in defense against cancer and in fighting off viral infections. […]
Evaluation and Characterization of SARS-CoV-2 Antibody in Convalescent Volunteer Plasma Donors for Potential Therapeutic Use
Plasma is a component of blood that carries proteins called antibodies that are usually involved in defending our bodies against viral infections. Blood plasma from patients that have recovered from COVID-19, referred to as convalescent plasma, contain antibodies against the virus that can be used as a potential treatment for COVID-19.
